Kaitou Sentai Lupanranger vs. Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger

A dream come tru for me, or at least as close as feasible. I have always wished for Morning Musume members to be Super Sentai members too. I always thought it would give Morning Musume a wider appeal if they had exposure in shows like this. Kudo's graduated but her graduation is recent enough to make the association. I know Kudo wants to be known more as an actress than an idol. Sorry Kudo, you will always be a Musume in my eyes.

Color coded members with distinct personalities following a strict choreography and poses??? It's like she never left Musume.

Anyway, I will try to review each episode, as much as my schedule will permit, every week. I will make comparisons and references with previous Super Sentai. Probably mostly with Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and Samurai Sentai Shinkenger as I watch (in the present tense) them the most. Those also represent a pretty broad spectrum of what a Super Sentai show can be.

As this is the first episode, this review will be more on the general feel of the show. Also, this particular post is bound to discuss the Lupanrangers more as there is greater focus on them in this episode. I think Patoranger will be given their proper introduction next Sunday.

Kairi – Red
Touma – Blue
Umika - Yellow

The costumes:
Regular burglar costumes: These are also color coded. They adopted stereotypical western European masquerade wear. Top hats, tail suits, a good use of lace for details. I’m not a fan of the masks but that’s just me. It’s very Kaito Kid.

Super Sentai suits:
I love color-on-black designs, like Shinkenger and Gokaiger. It looks very classy. Initially, I wasn’t a fan of the top hat visor but it has grown on me. I really love the use of visors to distinguish the members further.

Characters:
Kairi – While the look is a little off to me, the character is pretty good. I understand he needs to be slender for that phantom thief look but, he’s just too skinny for me. He reminds me of Gokaiger’s Marvelous in that he appears to not be very serious but is determined. He represents that confident and determined personality of a leader, a Super Sentai staple.
Touma – I think they nailed this one. The actor has the look of the cool, calm, collected and capable Blue, like Gokaiger’s Joe.
Umika – Gokaiger’s Luka plus. She sufficiently covers the sometimes-reliable-sometimes-airhead-girl.
Kogure – there’s something about this man…

Bistrot Jurer, the name of the restaurant where they work on their downtimes, translates to Bistro Promise. This promise, though not yet revealed to us, will play a significant part in this show.

Change device:
Their gun with their miniaturized vehicles/safe lock dials comprise their devices. They look very well put together.

Change sequence:
Good. Watch it.

The cold open:
Here we are given the general tone of this season: Comedy. There might be heavier themes later on but that is the tone of the show. The acting is exaggerated and campy but that is to be expected in a Super Sentai show.

Expect a lot of decadence and ostentatious displays of wealth as half of the show is about thieves stealing back stolen goods-- specifically, the Lupin Collection.

As expected: high quality production, very dynamic fight choreography. Parkour and acrobatics.

Like Kaito Kid and Lupin the III the thieves are playful with amazing reflexes and impeccable timing.

The part where Umika kicks a cup of darts and it hits the monsters was really cool.

The rest of the episode:
They’ve done a good job in introducing the Lupanrangers. Watch it.

Over Time does a fantastic job as usual in subbing this episode. Stay Tuned.
